Hamas said it would unleash “all-out war” in retaliation for the killing of four members of its military wing, Izzedine al Qassam. Israel, in turn, said it would respond to a shooting spree by a Palestinian gunman who killed two women and wounded 14 bystanders in downtown Jerusalem on Tuesday. Israel’s new military intelligence chief, Maj. Gen. Aharon Zeevi- Farkash, told legislators that Israel must brace for a wave of Palestinian attacks “worse than what we have experienced so far in Israeli cities,” the Yediot Ahronot daily said. In a phone call Wednesday, Arafat asked Secretary of State Colin Powell to send U.S. envoy Anthony Zinni back to the region. However, State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said there are no such plans. Palestinian officials said it was the first such phone call in 15 days. The four Hamas members were killed before dawn Tuesday in an Israeli commando raid on their hideout and explosives lab in the West Bank town of Nablus. When the Hamas men realized they were surrounded by Israeli forces, they detonated a bomb that inadvertently blew open the door to the apartment, military sources said. The commandos killed the four with handguns equipped with silencers, according to Yediot. Three men were killed in the sleeping quarters and one in the bathroom. Among the dead was Yousef Soragji, 42, leader of the Hamas military wing in the West Bank and a mastermind of several suicide bombings in Israel. More than 15,000 people on Wednesday attended the func Soragji and two other men killed in the hideout. “We will not our eyes until we see your reprisal.” the crowd chanted, asg fired in air. The march was led by activists from Hamas andth Aqsa Brigades, a militia linked to Arafat’s Fatah movement. Maj. Gen. Yitzhak Eitan. a West Bank army commander, v explosives lab was the biggest ever uncovered by Israeli forces, said the commandos found bomb belts, chemicals and a large tity of weapons “intended for terrorist attacks in the nearfut® Violence with a vengeance Both Israelis and Palestinians have blamed each other for the cycle of attacks and retaliation, which returned after severs of relative calm. Since September 2000, 902 have died on tfw Palestinian side and 256 on the Israeli side. 5c B Israeli Palestinian Total deaths In West Bank, Gaza and Israel 160 140 HH 120 ■ BB 100 80 60 Hi lore thr* ■purchase ■roved legents at ’ayon at W ■ hc prc - ■M’s out.

Details of the leaks, which were not publicly disclosed at the time, have prompted the South Australian state government to review reporting procedures of all such spills, officials told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The officials said the leaks were not considered harmful to the public. Earlier this month, some 15,600 gallons of radioactive fluid leaked from a pipe at the Beverley uranium mine, 370 miles north of the state capital, Adelaide. The spill was not publicly disclosed until more than 24 hours later.
